This card was made in honor of the birth of our first son. His mother and I found the pregnancy quite an abstract idea, similar to science fiction, so we thought we could best describe it with the help of the Stanley Kubrick classic 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Our initial idea was to somehow replicate the star child image, but after watching the movie again (and again) we found a better alternative. The story line around the journey through space closely resembled our journey with the little traveler in her belly, not to mention the jokes about "opening the pod bay doors, mom!" and suggesting the baby to sit down calmly and taking a stress pill when it was moving. In the end we had a lot of fun with the idea and making the card and even more so with our happy and healthy little space man.
